It looks as though the owners of UFC, Endeavor, are about to purchase WWE and implement some absolutely massive changes.
According to a new report from CNBC, Endeavor are set to make an announcement as early as Monday, April 3rd 2023 on the sale.
“A deal could be announced as soon as Monday. UFC and WWE are expected to form a new publicly traded company as part of the agreement, according to the people [close to the situation], who declined to be named due to the confidential nature of the discussions,” the site claimed.
Will Vince McMahon stay in WWE if UFC buys them?
CNBC also claimed that Vince McMahon would likely be STAYING with the company as part of the sale, noting: “Emanuel, a media executive, is expected to act as chief executive of both Endeavor and the new company.
“McMahon, likewise, is expected to be executive chairman, while Endeavor President Mark Shapiro will also work in the same role at the new company. Dana White will remain as president of UFC, while WWE CEO Nick Khan will serve as president of the wrestling business.”
This is absolutely massive news and we’ll be trying to keep on top of it as much as possible during what is already the biggest weekend of the year for WWE!
